Normally creating a small NetBSD build with rootfs inserted into kernel you mount the roofs as memory file system, e.g.
/dev/md0a / ffs rw,-s=32768 1 1
with following kernel options:
options MEMORY_DISK_IS_ROOT # force root on memory disk
options MEMORY_DISK_SERVER=0 # no userspace memory disk support
options MEMORY_RBFLAGS=0 # don't force single user
I was wondering if it was possible to mount the rootfs on CF's wd0a instead of memory.
I tried to remove the opts and mount / on the disk:
/dev/wd0a / ffs ro 1 1
but then it seems like it's not mounted at all and /sbin/init is not found.
Any idea if this is doable? I'd rather not use device's memory to host the root file system.
